Displaying wide versatility, ranging from pop and country music to children’s lullabies and Christmas classics, singer-songwriter Jewel has developed a large fan base, dating back to her sensational debut in the mid-1990s.
The Grammy-nominated performer is bringing her Handmade Holiday tour to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1. Tickets for Jewel’s show are $55, $65, $75, $85 and $95.
Jewel hits the road this holiday season with special guests — her father, Atz, and two brothers Atz Lee and Nikos Kilcher. She will perform a combination of holiday classics, holiday originals and top hits.
Jewel rose to prominence in 1995 with her debut pop album “Pieces of You.” The album became one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, going 12 times platinum. The album’s debut single “Who Will Save Your Soul” peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album’s other notable tracks, including “You Were Meant for Me” and “Foolish Games,” both reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and were listed on Billboard's year-end singles chart in 1997 and again in 1998.
Jewel strayed away from the pop genre in 2008 with the release of her country album “Perfectly Clear.” The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and featured hit singles “Stronger Woman,” “I Do” and “’Til It Feels Like Cheating.”
Throughout her career, Jewel has also released two children’s albums — “Lullaby” in 2009 and “The Merry Goes ‘Round” in 2013. She has also released two Christmas albums. Her first, “Joy: A Holiday Collection,” was released in 1999, followed by “Let It Snow: A Holiday Collection” in 2013.
Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.
